Spring is in the air at Lands Trust walk on April 8

Apr 2, 2018

The Sippican Lands Trust is hosting a springtime walk on Sunday, April 8 at 1 p.m.

The walk will be held at the Land Trust's White Eagle property. Alan Harris, Sippican Lands Trust’s walk leader and board member, will showcase the various features of the property during the approximately two-hour walk.

White Eagle is located off of Route 6 in Marion. Take Parlowtown Road across from the town cemetery and follow the road until you reach the cul-de-sac. Bear left onto the dirt road and follow past the abandoned cranberry bog on your right. Parking is available directly past the bog and along the dirt roadside. The kiosk is a short walk beyond.

The 248-acre White Eagle property supports a rich diversity of habitats including upland pine, mixed hardwood forest, shrub and wooded swamp, and freshwater marsh.

The walk is free and no registration is required. If the walk is canceled due to inclement weather, information will be posted to the Land Trust's website and Facebook page.
